Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
I am one of many that i am sure was disappointed that there was no game over cutscene for failing the LAst mission of Descent: Freespace.  :hopping:

This is a petition to the Freespace Port Team:

Make a cutscene showing what happens when the player fails to destroy the Lucifer in the final mission.

Anyone else who was as sorely disappointed as I was, please sign this petition.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Sorry, but that's really not going to happen. At least that's what the FSPort team lets on. :nervous:

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Heh.  Good luck.  Nobody on the Port team is a cutscene artist.  As much as we'd love to see it, even if you got a thousand signatures, it's not going to happen.

Now, on the other hand, if you gave us a copy of 3DS Max and paid cash for us to take 3D modelling courses, it might be a different story. ;)

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
There actually was supposed to be such a cutscene built into FS1, but it got canned.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Oh,Wel., we could always piece it together from shots from various films.

Ie
The shot of the Lucifer Firing its beam from fs2 opening.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Is the game based on the fact that the node is still destroyed? By the Bastion perhaps?

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Why would the Bastion blow the Sol-Delta Serpentis node up? :confused:

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
It was supposed to enter the node after the Lucifer. If the Lucifer sent bombers, it may have collapsed the node.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
First, dude those shots look fantastic. Second, I doubt that the explosion of the Bastion were enough to collapse the node. Afterall at that time it wan't stuffed with meson bombs.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
I would say that's ingame from the look of the ship and background and VA's new custom subspace vortex.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Hey, nice work VA. Considering that our current HTL models actually surpass what Volition used in their cutscenes, creating an endgame failure FS1 cutscene would be easy. Just show the Lucy jumping in and shooting at Earth. A few shots of hordes of Dragons overwhelming the flimsy defenses around Sol, and then back to the Earth, which now uses a scorched model. Something like that.

The axed Volition cutscene was supposed to be done "without looking too much like Independence Day", so you get an idea of what was originally intended.
